Base plate joins clamping force blocks with quick-change pallet system

Starting now, pneumatically actuated SCHUNK TANDEM KSP plus clamping force blocks can be directly joined to the SCHUNK VERO-S quick-change pallet system via standardized base plates.

Perfect modular system: SCHUNK TANDEM KSP plus clamping force blocks can be combined with the SCHUNK VERO-S quick-change pallet system using the standard SCHUNK ABP-h plus base plates.

The manually controlled SCHUNK ABP-h plus basic plates can be supplied with compressed air both on the bottom and side connections. An integrated pressure maintenance valve ensures that the clamping force blocks remain securely clamped even if the compressed air supply is interrupted. This means that the clamping force blocks can be used on a wide range of 3, 4 and 5-axis machines.

The current pressure is displayed on a pressure gauge integrated into the base plate. SCHUNK ABP-h plus base plates are available in two sizes, one for TANDEM KSP plus 100 and 160, and one for TANDEM KSP plus 250, with drilling patterns for one, two or for small sizes also for three clamping force blocks. The vise on the base plate can be turned by 90° as required for the respective application. Centering takes place using KSP plus fitting screws.
